- Mike Brady - Our hero, the health department worker...
- Kim Brady - Had to go and marry a health department worker didn't you?
- Don Palmer - Sewer worker who tends to wander around wearing a #42 jersey.
- Sheriff Reese - Your standard law enforcement, people are being eaten by killer slugs but he doesn't believe anyone...
- Dave & Maureen Watson - Just this guy who eats a slug by accident then explodes and his alcoholic wife.
- John Foley - The English-accent school biologist who happens to be an expert on slugs.
- Slugs - Random mutation of common garden slugs which are now carnivorous, poisonous, and infected with deadly parasites.
|After seeing this film I'm sure there's very little to surprise me, come on killer slugs? Despite being slow and easily squashed these wee beasties munch their way through numerous bad actors during the film. The cool thing here is Dave Watson's death scene, no matter how ridiculous the premise, when slug parasites eat his head. We even have a generic scientist replete with terrible English accent. These slugs have been mutated by toxic waste you see, and they're eating people at a frightful rate! "Slugs" is pretty hard to swallow folks but makes for some fun dissection. |
|Things I Learned From This Movie:|| |
- There are drunk blondes I find unattractive.
- Police run their lights when responding to an eviction notice.
- Slugs are stronger than your average sewer worker.
- A single gallon of gasoline can destroy a house. (See the pic below.)
- About one pair of panties from porking a redhead, young males will always notice the JD.
- There's a major artery in the human foot.
- Slugs love to munch hamsters.
- Killer slugs can navigate through closed facets.
- Killer slugs are better for male impotence than Viagra, hiss when attacking, hide their victims, and swim quite well.
- 10 mins - This bedroom looks suspiciously like a motel room.
- 19 mins - Once deep in the sewer he removes the mask?
- 26 mins - Okay, so he didn't notice the slug in the glove upon putting it on? Beating his hand against the floor did not kill superslug? Finally, why can he not take the glove off?
- 34 mins - Dave did not notice he ate a chopped up slug in the salad?
- 53 mins - A dead human with no heartbeat just starts fountaining blood.
- 56 mins - It is Leslie Neilson! Well, it sure looked like him.
- 80 mins - Those walkie talkies work good, despite the solid sewer walls.

Didja know this movie is based on a book? Yes, there was a book called "Slugs." The movie is a highly faithful translation of page to film. You know what this means? "Slugs" the book is just as bad as "Slugs" the movie. And one other thing:

This is my favorite bad movie. I can't remember anything about, it's been so long, except for the guy getting killed in the sewer. Those suckers pulled him into the pipe! I'm always impressed when others know of this movie. Good job!

Now this is a bad movie. Let's see, we have: naked people and flesh-eating slimy things. The acting is cheesy, the blood rockets out in large quanities, and there's even a whole lot of explosions! Now if Bruce Campbell made a guest appearance, this film would be a classic.

It's interesting how toxic waste mutates slugs and absolutely no other life forms. This movie was p**s-poor.

This film was OK... But where are the dramatic and tension-building chase scenes? Oh, and how did those young lovers not notice the slugs?

This is NOT a make out movie. Wanna know how I found that out? My boyfriend and I rented it on a Saturday night to watch while we ate pizza and . . .whatever. Well this movie is so totally outrageous that the pizza went ignored and, worst of all, we forgot to make out! That is how absorbing this movie is!
Filmed (mostly) in upstate New York by a Spanish director this movie tries to recapture the mood of those Bert I. Gordon pictures of the 50's only instead of radiation the slugs are mutated by toxic waste. They don't get any bigger but man, do they have an appetite.
Everyone in this movie comes up with complicated ideas to stop the slugs but nobody considers: A) salt to dry the out, B) oil in their path to stop their advance, C) just stop on them for cryin' out loud!
It is a fun movie and has some really attention grabbing moments (hmmmm, like what happens to Bobby and Donna) and yeah it is low budget but you won't be able to turn away from it.
Now if you want a movie that you can make out to, try AXE.

This movie is nothing short of incredible. It has amazed me in every sense of the word. And so, I did what had to be done. I wrote the sequel to SLUGS. It is called SLUGS 2 (Close for Comfort) and is about a page and a half long.
